Discover Italy through its agriturismi: Piemonte

Posted on: 20-10-2014

“DISCOVER ITALY THROUGH ITS AGRITURISMI”

Piedmont is a northwestern region of Italy and borders the countries of Switzerland and France.

True to its meaning, “foot of the mountain”, Piedmont is a land of mountains.  This region is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, which includes the Monvisio, where the river Po' rises. Piedmont has the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy.

Piedmont is one of the great wine-growing regions in Italy. More than half of its 700 square kilometres of vineyards are registered with DOC designations.

Piedmont produces the prestigious wines of Barolo, Barbaresco (from the Langhe near Alba) and the Moscato d’Asti.
Interestingly, the vineyards in Asti are also highly respected for their production of metedo-classico wines.

Indigenous grape varieties of Piedmont are primarily red and include Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Grignolino and Brachetto.

The city of Asti is located about 55 Km east of Turin and is one of the most important centers of Monferrato. The latter is one of the best known Italian wine districts in the world, declared on 22nd June 2014 a UNESCO World Heritage site
